Eric Lupton on Building a Top Pool Safety Company While "Disabled"...
Ep #229 - This week on the show, I have a powerful interview and message to share from a hugely inspiring guest, Eric Lupton. Eric is the President of Life Saver Pool Fence, a company initially started by his family, which he joined in an admin and marketing capacity back in 1997.
Having previously owned a boutique web design firm, his first work was bolstering Life Saver’s web presence, an area he oversees directly to this day. He became the company’s Executive Vice President in 2002, managing many of the company’s day-to-day operations, before taking over as President in early 2006 with the retirement of the company’s founder, and his father, Robert Lupton.
Eric has been featured as an expert in two New York Times Best Sellers on writing effective marketing copy and his thoughts on online marketing have been quoted by publications including the Wall Street Journal and USA Today. These days, Eric is mostly sought after and interviewed by the media as an expert on pool safety. A lifelong pool safety advocate, Eric serves on the Board of Directors for the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA) and was unanimously voted to take over as the NDPA Vice President in 2016. Eric also started, personally manages, and contributes to the largest pool safety page on Facebook, Pool Safety for Children, which has over 15,000 followers.
Eric manages all of this while living with a severe disability, cerebral palsy, caused by a brain injury during birth, that requires him to use an electric wheelchair and need help for many day-to-day tasks. His symptoms are almost identical to those that can be experienced by near-drowning survivors. Fortunately, neither his speech or his intellect were affected.
